Default Skater Boy

When I shot my first street shots, I saw this little guy rolling around - so I gave it a try... I guess that's what you call "panning", right

.... OK, the subject is not really fast, but it's moving, so it counts as my first panning try

I really like how the colors of his jacket pop out... maybe you like this "cool boy", maybe not - please let me know!!

I like this, it has worked well and the movement can be felt. I just wish it had been taken from a lower angle, that would have really taken it up a level....... next time

Given what you were up against I'd say you did well.
The colors do really standout.

While the colors do stand out, I would like to see it in black and white. I love the reverse motion blur. Normally the guy on the board would be blurred and the back ground sharp. I am going to have to try this. Good panning. As for the image, I like it. Wish it had a tad more context to the left, but all n all. Wonderful!

Yeah, me too. There's a certain "casualness" about the kid that really works well in this shot. With the people in the background blurred, they look "hectic," while the kid is calm and collected. I like it!

That's well said, Chato.
The action, the colors, the "I've a new board" story - all works for me.

Wow, I didn't expect so many comments on this shot - so Mark, simple, selvin, Javier, Dave and AaronB, I want to thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to comment!! I'm glad you liked this little guy

@Mark: I'll try a lower angle next time - and of course post the result
@Javier: I wasn't quite sure about the b&w-treatment... I think I'll post it anyway ASAP

So finally here is the b&w version of this shot - what do you think about it? Does b&w work for this shot? Maybe you'd like to tell me something about this b&w

Heh, he he - This is a good shot and works fine in B&W. But I prefer the color version, well, because the kid is so colorful...
